Making Melodies In My Heart

The semester is almost over and done with, and all that’s left to do for me is one last paper requirement. However, I haven’t even gotten a whiff of the sweet province air and I’m already being haunted by the ghost of next semester.

I only realized this afternoon that the yearbook committee has accomplished absolutely zilch and that we really need to start getting things going if we even hope to get a yearbook come graduation time. I, for one, will not allow such a travesty of failing to have a yearbook.  We didn’t get to have one back in high school, and I certainly won’t allow that to happen again!

As I was voted layout editor (much to my surprise and contempt), I am tasked with one of the most labor intensive and creatively exhausting jobs ever.  For what seems like ages, I’m finally free from most academic duties, so I found time to look for photo inspirations for the yearbook’s design.

I’ve always been a huge fan of typography, and one of my ideas is to have a relatively simple yet nakakasindak front cover.

This sort of reminds me of the Arkination logo. I think this will look very striking as a cover.

We could also take advantage of the fact that there are a number of talented photographers in the college/batch and maybe we can use their talents to get a really great photo for the cover! Of course, I would prefer it to be non-cliche. No more photos of the UPCA facade please. Something a bit more unconventional like this would be nice.

Another look we can possibly go for is the vintage, pop art look, which is decidedly popular nowadays. This will please all the artsy fartsy kids, which I guess in our case, is all of us. That’s just my opinion though.

On the other hand, we can go the completely opposite direction and go font and text crazy with the front cover. I’m not too sure if this would bode well with most of my batchmates, not everyone can appreciate a beautiful mess.

Para maiba lang, each person’s page can look something like this! It looks cool, right? Then the person’s other shots (like the sablay, formal, and creative shots) can be placed elsewhere on the page as thumbnails and such.

This is probably too artsy, sabog, and difficult to use for a yearbook. But I posted it anyway because it looks really nice.


I’m really hoping the committee gets to meet soon. I am equal parts excited and anxious about this!

Allie has seen many a dust bunny in her lifetime, most of them in her dorm room. She is often mistaken as a 13-year old, further intensified by her weird fashion choices that mostly involve cutesy patootsie rings, colorful knee high socks, and ribbons and bows in her hair. She dreams of waking up one day and finding herself as a character in Star Wars. Preferably a jedi. With a purple lightsaber.
